Enrolment Procedures

If you have a child whom you wish to register in St. Francis’ Primary School for August 23  the following information may be of interest:

Pupils registering for the start of the new school session in August 2023, must have attained the age of 5 years between 1 March 2023 and the 28 February 2024.

It is customary for children to attend their local primary school. You can find your nearest school here.

If St. Francis’ Primary is your local school and you wish to enrol your child for the start of the new session in August 2023, you need to complete an online application.

To complete this form you will need

  • A digital copy of the child’s birth certificate (The requirement to upload a birth certificate only applies to children who did not attend a nursery or pre-school operated by Glasgow City Council)
  • Your child’s Doctor’s details
  • The name of the local school/centre you wish to register the child.

During Term 4, 2023, Ms Lynch, our Depute Head Teacher responsible for P1 enrolment, will invite new pupils and their Parents/Carers to a series of induction meetings.



A Parent/Carer has the right to make a request for his/her child to be educated in a school other than the local school.

Please note, you must complete an enrolment application before you submit a placing request. Once you submit your enrolment application, you can find information on how to apply for a placing request here.

Placing request guidance and application form: https://www.glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=18205

Parents/carers should note that if they apply and are successful for a placing request into a particular primary school, the child would not automatically transfer to the associated secondary school.

Parents/carers should also note the successful placing of one sibling does not guarantee the placing of subsequent siblings at a later stage.
